Homework is assigned for the purpose of reinforcement of work presented
in school. It should encourage the development of self-discipline,
study skills, and the ability to work independently. The nature and
amount of homework and study is dependent upon the grade level and
academic content. Parents should encourage their children to complete
homework in a timely manner. If a child is absent, arrangements should
be made to obtain homework from a classmate or pick up the assignments
at the office after 1:30 P.M. and before 3:00 P.M.
